Likes: Highly anticipated reunion of my favorite My Girl leads. It’s been a while and these two didn’t age a bit.
The characters and their dirty secrets. I love the way they all got revealed in the end. It was a surprise for Cha Jae
Wan’s real father to know that he was actually the father. It was terrible for Jae Wan’s mother to know that he was actually his mother. And it was just tragic for the poor boy, Jae Wan to know who his both parents are. Terrible truth!
The setting. It has a very European feel and hotel looks very grand. Did some bits of research, it’s the Intercontinental Alpensia Resort.
Best actress award goes to Baek Mi Nyeo for giving justice to her challenging character. She always does so always
watch out for her.
So many pretty faces but Wang Ji Hye is a new found for me.
Have to give credit to the stylist. Everyone looked great but my favorite is the very classy style of Chae Kyung played by Wang Ji Hye.
Dislikes: I just didn’t feel the old chemistry between the leads. Was that because they both looked like frozen dolls?
Lee Dong Wook was too thin and Lee Da Hae looked so operated to me.
The atmosphere was dull. The hotel always looked empty. They could have added some more extras to have that realistic atmosphere of a popular and well-sought hotel.
Some annoying sidekicks. Shouldn’t have focused too much on them.
The ending was okay.
